At 7:30pm we gather in the Main Hall for Introductions  and to talk through the program and activites available.

For the first time I will be  offering a :

Sound Healers' Mentor & Training workshop

Saturday May 25th. 2:30 - 6:30pm 

This  will  include:

  • instruction of the longer form version of the Medicine Buddha Mantra, as taught to me directly by Venerable Lama Tendar, who served as  Chant Master to His Holiness the Dalai Lama for many years.  It is my great honour and privilege to be able to share this ancient and profoundly healing mantra with you, with his blessing. In my personal and professional practice of this over the last year, I have found the healing effects, when combined with Reiki especially, have been nothing short of profound. I would encourage all sound healers & healers in training - to attend this workshop and add  this to their existing practice and group sessions.
  • instruction on the correct way to play Tibetan singing bowls & crystal singing bowls. Sound healing is a subtle modality and one should always be mindful of this when playing for others. 
  • a general discussion on the use of other instruments in your practice and the benefits and/or potential risks of doing 'too much'
  • connecting with and releasing your healing voice - the most powerful healing instrument we have! Best of all it's totally free and everyone has one. We will discuss the common 'blocks' people face and then continue onto a group practice to help unearth  your personal blockages and help work on your strengths in this area. I believe every person has a unique and valuable frequency to offer and it is now my sacred mission to awaken as many Sound Healing voices as I can!

After 10 years of working with sacred sounds and 15 years as a Healer, it is now time for me to step back from general group events and to empower as many up-and-coming Sound Healers of the Future as I can. 

To help you put your Theory into Practice and to find the confidence to trust yourself enough to create your own offerings with authenticity, wisdom  and grace. 

I encourage all sound healers & healers-in-training - to attend the Sound Healers' Workshop and add this Medicine Buddha mantra  (long or short form) to their existing private practice and group sessions.  My intention is to show up as both Teacher & Mentor.

  • To offer guidance to those currently learning sound healing
  • support existing healing practitioners expand their offerings
  • To answer any questions you have around the methods you are currently using with sound
  • discuss the various instruments used and best techniques 
  • to share my experiences with you to help you on your journey

ALL retreat guests are welcome to attend the Workshop.
